Iron

Iron (supplements include ferric pyrophosphate, ferrous sulphate, and sodium ferrous citrate) is an essential trace mineral in human nutrition. It is involved in respiration, particularly oxygen and electron transport, as well as possessing immune system and cognition - enhancing capabilities.

Iron-deficiency, which can lead to anemia, is the most common nutritional disorder in the world, with approximately 25% of the world's population being iron-deficient. Even iron-deficiency states that do not lead to anemia may have detrimental effects on human health, including compromised cognitive function, overall weakness and fatigue, and a weakening of the immune system.

The best dietary sources of iron are spinach, chard, thyme and turmeric. Pregnant and menstruating women are often at risk of iron deficiency, as are infants, adolescents, endurance athletes, and those under any other condition of growth and/or fatigue generating an increased cellular demand for oxygen.

The loss of iron also occurs during conditions of blood loss such as uterine bleeding in post-menopausal women on hormone replacement therapy, gastrointestinal bleeding, and bleeding from trauma or surgery. Some iron loss can also occur through mucosal excretions and skin sloughing.

Ferric pyrophosphate has been shown in animal studies to be more bioavailable than other more common forms of iron such as ferrous sulphate and sodium ferrous citrate. It is also more stable and is less prone to oxidation.
